Broadway Infant School is forward looking in its approach to education. The use of a creative curriculum has long been integrated into teaching and learning within the school, we place a high importance on delivering a broad and balanced curriculum for all children. We plan and deliver high quality and engaging learning opportunities so that we inspire curiosity and achieve excellence. We often use the outdoor environment around our school for teaching sessions because we know our children enjoy being active and out in the fresh air whilst learning.
At Broadway children are taught how to be successful learners through the celebration of our core school values and learning characters. Children enjoy learning and are supported to reach their full potential.
Free high quality school meals are provided for all our children and we encourage healthy eating. The meals are cooked on site by our excellent catering team and lunch times are well supervised by a large number of dedicated Lunch Break Supervisors. Children can also bring a packed lunch to school if parents/carers prefer. We participate in the government ‘Free Fruit’ scheme so children receive a piece of fruit or vegetable each day.
We provide a breakfast club at school, serving breakfast for children from Broadway and from our partner school the Ridge Junior School. Our club opens from 7:45am please contact the school office for more information.
The school currently has the capacity for 180 pupils shared across six classes – two Reception, two Year 1 plus two Year 2 classes. Classes are supported by teaching assistants and this ensures children have access to high levels of adult support and attention throughout the day.

Our School Rules
We have 3 school rules that are used with the children to discuss their behaviour. All the children in our school know the rules and can explain to any visitor what they mean. We have high expectations of children’s behaviour and when children do not behave as is expected staff discuss this with the children. The children are supported to identify the rule they have not followed, what they should do next time and how they could make amends for their behaviour. From this process children are taught about behaviour in a positive way and can learn from mistakes they make.
Our rules are:
